There are so many ugly trends in fashion these days I don't know where to begin! Which popular trends do you wish would vanish?

I HATE the "hipster" look! There is nothing new about wearing your parents old flannel shirts. They were ugly then and ugly now! And why spend over $100 on ugly ripped jeans? And what is up with guys and buns/chignons? I mean he could have the face of grizzly bear with the bushiest beard you ever seen but the tightest little bun on the back of his head?

What trends bother you the most?

Enough with "cross-body" bags! Lol, they just look like 80s purses with long straps that were the style then.

And some designers are overdoing the ridiculous uneven hems, especially when they add the layered look--very sloppy.

For me it's the ear gauges. I'm not opposed to body piercing but when they get up to a 1" or more stretch it just puts me off.

My biggest problem with cross-body bags is that you really can't use them! I have to carry around a large tote bag or satchel to fit all my stuff. Most cross-body bags I see won't fit more than a credit card and cell phone.

I don't really care for uneven hems either. I really feel like fashion is getting sloppier every day. Doesn't anybody dress up a little from time to time?

Women shaving any part of their head. It looked stupid on Rihanna, and it looks stupid on you.

Ear guages are gross. When kids finally grow up and out of that punk look, they often have to get surgery to correct hanging earlobes.

I have a good reason for doing that. I've been shaving the entire bottom half of my head all the way to my scalp since I was 13, and I'm 38 years old today (Happy Birthday me!) My hair is unbelievably thick and frizzy. It's so thick that when I wear it down no one even knows it's shaved; there's still so much left. It's down to my waist. When I go to a new hairdresser for the first time they are completely shocked when they lift up my hair haha. Also, South TX is so hot having the bottom half shaved helps prevent heat stroke

The trend I hate (is it even a trend?) are those baggy pants that show the boxer shorts. Then the guys wearing them go around hitching up their pants constantly, even though they are wearing belts fastened too loose, also on purpose. I don't want to be seeing strange guy a__ when I'm going about my business in town. Barf.

I use a Harvey's mini-messenger, and I will not be giving it up anytime soon, no matter who doesn't like it!

I always use it when I go into the city.
It carries everything!

If I choose to leave it unzipped, the iPad slides into it with ease. (sticks out about an inch or so).

Even worse is when they're wearing the pants like that but they're not wearing a pair of nice boxers underneath. The other day I was in Walmart and the lines were all really long, except for one. So I headed for that line and then noticed that the customer in front of me had his pants below his buttocks and a pair of stained gray briefs hanging out. He was a good-looking, fit guy, but I just couldn't put my basket of groceries that close to those stained gray underpants, so I had to go stand in one of the longer lines.

Leggings!! Ladies, I know they're comfortable, but really. Too many wear them like pants I am not talking your specially made "jegging-leggings" or skinny jeans, I am talking those flimsy things one step above leotards. Too many wear them without anything covering them and they show E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. And wearing them that way especially, if you don't have the figure for them, it can be quite embarrassing to say the least.

Here is the best video that I have found for leggings and yes, I know that the girl is what would be considered "skinny" but notice how her tops cover down over the top of her leggings
